Fresh Powder for February!

The latest system that passed through New England brought some decent snowfall across much of the state. While much of the greater accumulations were seen in southern New Hampshire, the northern half of the state didn’t miss out completely!

Not too shabby! It’s possible we’ll see a few more inches before all is said and done. As this system moves out, cold arctic air will filter in, allowing temperatures to drop across the state. High pressure will build in from the south through early Wednesday morning, bringing fair conditions for the middle of the week.
Looking ahead for the rest of the week, models are showing the development of a weak Clipper system Wednesday afternoon that skirts across the Great Lakes region and up through the Northeast. This may bring some more snow to New Hampshire, but not enough to write home about. Sounds like Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of 6 more weeks of winter will hold true!
